Name: Debbie Carlson tracimullen@aol.com Date: 2009-08-29 What is your postal address? 1223 No.20th St Council Bluffs, Iowa 51501. Surnames in Collin County? Garner Comments: Looking for an Obit or death Certificate for Samantha J. Garner (S.J.) Died in 1923 and buried in the Crossroads Cemetery. Or could someone please tell me if there are any mortuarys left in the area from that time where I might get information. Don't know the exact death date. Thank You for your help. Debbie
ed note:The listing at Crossroads 1851-1923 doesnt give much information. The only other Garner I find is Marshall E Mar 1 1907- May 10 1933. Texas Death records say he died in Fannin county. Listed as Marshall Early Garner.
In 1880 there is a James Garner in Denton county. Im thinking he died and they buried him across the line at Crossroads and then she was buried with him later. By 1972 his stone is gone. There was a lot of vandalism up there awhile back. His wife is listed as Seneth J and is quite a bit younger than him. Marshall may be a grandson.
1920 census lists her in Leonard, Fannin county with her son and family. In 1910 she was living in Ellis county. Her son Bartholomew b abt 1885 died in 1956 in Fannin county. I dont find her listed in ancestry or in the McKinney Newspaper obituaries.

Rich Comments: I am searching for info on Killian & Minerva Rich in Collin Co., TX. He was my ggggrandfather. I am trying to find the names of his children and hopefully, their children. Would you possibly have any records about him. He was born abt. 1838 in IL and married Minerva (Woolever) Rich on Aug. 9, 1859. His father was John Wesley and his mother was Nancy Crack. I have found on the internet that Killian dies in 1881 in Collin Co., TX, but I do not know if the date is accurate. My sister thinks that he was buried at Lowry's Crossing. Thank you for any info you may have. Kelly Rich-Chewning
